Another Blue Collection

Please pardon me for not having taken the best photos.  I was rushed, as I needed to get this boxed up to ship to California.  This is the second of this pattern quilt that I have done this year.  It is a very labor-intensive job, with a proverbial TON of applique to SID.  And, yes, I SID all of it!
 Though similar, this client has chosen slightly different fabrics from the other quilt I did.  She has the most lovely teal silk.  It's a pretty shade for the odd-shaped leaves that meander up the sides of the quilt.
 This has a single layer of wool batting.  I used clear nylon for the SID, soft gold So Fine for the background fillers, and blue Glide for the borders.
 I'll keep the words to a minimum, and just let the pictures say it all.

 and a fun peek at the back of the quilt...The fabric is actually a pale blue, but is color altered with my camera apparently.
It's a lovely quilt, with some fantastic features, and colors.  Not sure that I am ready to conquer this much applique, but I am sure glad my clients are!  I am getting caught up after the summer slow-season.   If you have quilts you might like quilted before Christmas, please contact me soon!

I have quilts I'd LOVE for you to do but I have no money...in fact, negative money-lol. It seems like every quilt you do is a masterpiece. Amazing talent!

Gorgeous! You've really made this beautiful applique quilt shine. I'm sure it takes a super long time to do all of that SID but it's worth it in the end. :-)

Such beautiful quilting and it compliments the top well. I know you're thrilled to have this one finished. Wow! What a lot of work! What type of batting do you like to use? The quilting texture on your quilts shows beautifully.
